Having established himself in London as an etcher of urban architectural views, Joseph Pennell returned to the United States in 1917 and turned his attention to watercolors of New York subjects. This work is probably one of a series of twenty views titled Out of a Brooklyn Window that Pennell exhibited in the Brooklyn Museum’s 1921 watercolor exhibition. The manner in which Pennell constructed the composition of abbreviated areas of dark and light forms recalls the compositional methods of...

Inspired by the imposing architectural profiles and irrepressible energy of New York City, Joseph Stella completed his first painting of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1920 and returned to the theme a number of times in succeeding years. Stella used pastel as an experimental mode in which to work out his denser and highly finished modernist abstractions in oil.

After many year abroad, Joseph Pennell settled in Brooklyn Heights in 1921. His upper-story apartment afforded magnificent views of New York, its waterways, and its bridges—all of which were regular subjects in his art. Pennell achieved the tenebrous effects of this work with aquatint, an etching technique in which the picture is conceived in tone rather than line. Aquatint uses a plate coated with a porous, grainy ground. During the bath, acid bites the underlying metal around the tiny...

On special assignment for a German newspaper, Rudolph Cronau came to America to document its cities, frontier lands, and Native American populations for curious European audiences. His training at the Düsseldorf art academy, which emphasized careful draftsmanship, is clearly evident in this romanticized vista of Brooklyn’s famous Green-Wood Cemetery at sunset. Conceived in tones of black and white for reproduction, this watercolor features the Gothic-style entrance arch at center, the...

George Brainerd, a lifelong Brooklynite, produced a total of 2,500 photographs before his early death at age 42 in 1887. The majority of these were images of Brooklyn, a vast documentation of the urban landscape—dams and mills, bridges and train depots, engine houses and pumping stations—but also, especially after 1880, images of city dwellers and street scenes. This photograph, from about 1885, shows Brainerd’s attention to composition and captures the leisurely atmosphere at Coney...

The United States Sanitary Commission was created during the Civil War to aid the wounded and their families. In 1864 the Brooklyn Sanitary Fair on Montague Street raised over $400,000 for the benefit of the commission. Here Homer depicts one of its fund-raising attractions, a “Post Office” where people could pay to send messages to others at the fair. Usually, appealing young ladies worked in the “Post Office” transcribing and sending the letters—attracting the men, who would go...

This portrait was painted the year that the sitter moved from New York to Brooklyn, where David Leavitt had an interest in the Brooklyn White Lead Company (later Dutch Boy Paint). One of his partners in this enterprise was the Brooklyn Museum's founder, Augustus Graham. David Leavitt here looks up from his newspaper, which signals involvement as a citizen in the larger world of business and politics.

This portrait was painted the year that the sitter moved from New York to Brooklyn, where her husband, David Leavitt, had an interest in the Brooklyn White Lead Company (later Dutch Boy Paint). One of his partners in this enterprise was the Brooklyn Museum's founder, Augustus Graham. Maria Leavitt, fashionably dressed and coiffed, is seated in a Neoclassical armchair before an open window. A generalized landscape view associates her with nature—a reference both to the cloistered lifestyle of...
